Hi Note9 fam. I was contemplating selling my Note9 because GCam had stopped working since Android 10. But luckily, I've found a stable version (I can't stand the performance and quality of the stock Samsung camera).

PixelCam_7.3_V3.0 by jairo_rossi (https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/changelog1124/). The link was found originally from this list (https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/).

I tried about 9-10 different modded versions and this was by far the most stable. I'll list out below what works and does not work based on my testing. All you need to do is download the APK and install it. No other tweaks/mods required. I'm using an unrooted Note9 128gb, Snapdragon variant.

What works:
1. Photography (regular and portrait; both selfie and back cameras work flawlessly)
2. Videography (both selfie and back camera works flawlessly)
3. Night Sight (tried it in my room with all doors and windows closed) *Astrophotography is included but I have't had a chance to test it out
4. Panorama
5. Time lapse video

What does not work:
1. *Photos in 16:9 ratio (will force close and you won't be able to reopen unless you clear data/cache*
2. Slow Mo video (will force close but app will relaunch)
3. Preview after taking a photo (this will ONLY work if you have Google Photos; if you use the Samsung Gallery or any 3rd party gallery app, previewing after taking a photo does not work)

Hope that helps! Please feel free to add in your experience. All credit goes to jairo_rossi for giving all Note9 users a stable GCam version for Android 10!

Which of them in particular. They ate about six gcams of different dates. And can it work on os9 of note 9?

I've been using GCam version MGC_6.1.021_BSG_A on my Note9 snapdragon for well over a year and it takes considerably better pics than the stock camera.

Is this version a lot better than the Pixel 3 ports like the one I've been using?

Hello, testing jairo_rossi last update pixelcam plus 1.1 from 05/23

So far this is the best gcam for note 9 snapdragon i have tested.

In android 10, stock samsung camera got a huge improvement, very good night pics, compared to stock camera android 9. In pie, almost any gcam was better than stock. Now not any gcam is better than stock, most of the variants you got a very pixelated night pics, so gcam from jairo_rossi is a very very good! Some pics are a little dark vs stock, this can be improved.

Testig Astrophotography this night.

When enabled, the sky pics get very very pixelated, normal night shot is better. This can be by the high ISO used. May in the next update this can be improved.

Try lastest Urnyx05.

I'm testing Urnyx now.

Jairovrossi is working in my note 9. Snapdragon, android 10. If your device is exynos Look for Exynos version. If you have android 9, look for a version that works in pie.

I haven’t tried Astrophotography but everything in my original post still stands for the version I downloaded, even after 2 software updates for the Note9. The stock camera quality is still subpar after the Android 10 update so GCam is a must have for me.

For normal pics?

I just testing night sight. Last version of jairorossi pixelcamplus v2.0 is much better, but stock night shot is still very very good, i found gcam is just a little better. Tomorrow going to test normal pics.

Some samples day outside, and night shot inside.

Stock night shot is very goog in android 10, almost no diferences, and in some shots quality is not subpar.

Hello fellas. I, as many of you, wasn't ready to give up on the gcam port for this device, so I went looking for one of the modders that hasn't let me down on these matters.
This is the version I'm using (gcam 7.3) from Arnova8G2, and the only thing missing is the astrophotography. Aside from that it works great, even the slow mo, portraits and night sight.
Cheers mates.
